With more than 25 years in the culinary profession, there aren’t many places Chef Robert Irvine hasn’t cooked or challenges he hasn’t had to cook his way out of. During his time in the British Royal Navy and in the years that followed, Robert has cooked his way through Europe, the Far East, the Caribbean and the Americas, in hotels, on the high seas and even for the Academy Awards; and that was before his career in TV.
As the host of one of the Food Network’s highest rated shows, Restaurant: Impossible, going on it’s 10th season, Robert is best known for saving struggling restaurants across America by assessing and overhauling the restaurant’s weakest spots.
Going on its third year, Robert continues to tour his live show, Robert Irvine LIVE, across the US. Robert also operates Robert Irvine’s Nosh, a restaurant in Hilton Head South Carolina, and is the author of two cookbooks, Mission: Cook! and Impossible to Easy. Robert was previously the host of A Hero’s Welcome, Food Network’s Restaurant Express, Dinner: Impossible and Worst Cooks in America. In 2014, with proceeds from his various ventures and contributions from his fans, Robert launched the Robert Irvine Foundation to benefit members of our military, first responders and their families.
“The Gary Sinise Foundation is an amazing organization devoted to honoring the sacrifices made by the men and women defending our country. I’m very grateful for the opportunities I’ve had to be involved and look forward to continuing my support of the Foundation’s efforts.”
